I drove from Rethymo to the Preveli Monastery by scooter, and the views to get to it was amazing, and i mean amazing. I am talking in particular to the gorge that splices its way through!
When you are nearly there, enjoy the views of the beach and look out for the WW2 statues and memorials.
At the monastery was simply great. This history of this place is fantastic and you buy souvenirs too! The priest was nice, he liked my name as it the holiest of boys names(thanks Mum!!) My name is Banayiodis (also spelt in many ways such as Panagiotis). It means All saint and is the masculine of Panagiota which comes form the Virgin Mary.
This is a very peaceful place to visit, with a nice well, memorials from WW2 and a place to pray too!!
